March 12, 2014 Leave a comment

Counter-CutThis is the eigth in a series of posts examining the Middle East situation from a Biblical perspective.

The previous post on this topic, The Middle East: History,  has demonstrated that based on history alone the state of Israel is the rightful owner of all the land contested by the Arabs and Jews.
